BTU and ECD Partner to Develop a Comprehensive Recipe Prediction Tool

Nov 18, 2015

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced that it has partnered with thermal measurement innovator ECD in a joint development initiative to integrate the company’s new Recipe Generator technology directly into BTU’s Wincon furnace operating system. ECD’s Recipe Generator is currently available through ECD’s M.O.L.E. series of thermal profiling systems, and the new integrated feature will be released in early 2016 as part of BTU’s Pyramax reflow product line. The technology will be the industry’s most comprehensive recipe prediction tool to-date, due to its process settings for zone temperatures and belt speed, which take into account the convection rate -- the most significant element of heat transfer.

  Todd Clifton, ECD President and CEO, commented, “BTU is an ideal partner for this new, comprehensive prediction tool. BTU’s closed-loop pressure control technology, which maintains consistent convection pressure, allows for precise profile control and repeatability oven-to-oven and line-to-line. Integrating ECD’s Recipe Generator technology into BTU’s advanced reflow systems offers manufacturers a streamlined and effective approach to proper initial in-spec recipe generation for higher yield results.”

  “Our on-going focus is to enable our customers’ success with ovens that have the highest productivity and lowest running costs. This tool decreases oven setup time, provides customers a quick and efficient method of generating a starting recipe for new SMT assemblies,” said Peter Tallian, General Manager of BTU. “We are proud to partner with ECD, as they have a long history of understanding the effect of the convection rate on the reflow process. This comprehensive tool is head and shoulders above the competition as it incorporates the most important element -- convection rate -- as part of the Recipe Generator.”
